That should all but do it as James Starks barrels over a couple defenders with a few nice blocks up front. Packers face a 3rd-and-13 at the Falcons 15-yard line at the two-minute warning. The Falcons are unable to stop the clock so the Packers should be able to run the clock down to around 1:20 remaining before kicking what should be the game-clinching field goal.

Douglas appears to drop a pass on third down, but it is ruled a completion on the field.
